Welcome to the lovely world of wedding planning.  Someone’s feelings will always be hurt.  Can you do a destination wedding somewhere? That usually cuts the list down if people have to fly.

Elope but don’t keep it a secret. Send out an announcement as soon as you have eloped to let you family know that you are now a Mrs.!!… Also let them know that a celebration is in the works after basic training and will be following up with an invitation.

Just say exactly what you said here.  That  you are doing a private ceremony for immediate family only that will be followed by a reception in your honor after basic training that will include everyone.   Don’t be embarrassed!
